Primary voter turnout is light

Democratic challengers to two incumbent area Republican legislators were selected in a primary Tuesday that saw a light voter turnout.

The only contests for county voters were on the Democratic ballot, which contributed to an unofficial voter turnout of just 15 percent countywide, according to figures from County Clerk Jon Dolson.

In the 6th Congressional District Democratic primary, Sarah Lloyd of Wisconsin Dells bested Michael Slattery of Maribel by a better than three-to-one margin. Lloyd will face off against Republican incumbent Rep. Glenn Grothman. In the city of Plymouth, where turnout was 15 percent, Lloyd got 229 votes to 77 for Slattery.

Rebecca Clarke won her race for the 26th Assembly Democratic nomination over Evan Braun by a better than three-to-one margin. The Sheboygan resident will go on to face Republican incumbent Terry Katsma in the district, which includes part of the city Sheboygan; all of the city of Sheboygan Falls; the villages of Adell, Cedar Grove, Oostburg and Random Lake; and the towns of Holland, Lima, Sherman and Wilson.

In the 27th Assembly District, incumbent Republican Tyler Vorpagel and Democratic challenger Nanette Bulebosh were both unopposed in their primaries.

Two area Republican incumbents - 20th District State Sen. Duey Stroebel and 59th District State Rep. Jesse Kremer – have no Democratic opposition in the Nov. 8 general election. Both districts include the village of Cascade and Waldo and the towns of Greenbush, Lyndon, Mitchell, Russell and Scott.
